    Hey everyone! I have two buff laced polish chicks with very different feathering coming in on the top of their heads.. I'm thinking one is a pullet and the other a roo... any opinions on who's who?

    Chick #1: more full feathering on top of head

    chick #2: this one has more of a top hat/mohawk going on...

    I am thinking that chick two might be a roo and chick one a pullet? Any opinions???

    From what I've read the hens have more of a ball on top of their head and the males is more spread out. And I don't think you can see their combs very well to tell.
